Going Short-Term Or Long-Term? Ceo Stock Options And Temporal Orientation In The Presence Of Slack, 2016 Melbourne Business School
Going Short-Term Or Long-Term? Ceo Stock Options And Temporal Orientation In The Presence Of Slack, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Robert M. Wiseman Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Dr
Geoffrey P Martin
We draw on behavioral agency theory to explain how decision heuristics associated with CEO stock options interact with firm slack to shape the CEO’s preference for short or long-term strategies (temporal orientation). Our findings suggest CEO current option wealth substitutes for the influence of slack resources in encouraging a long-term orientation, while prospective option wealth enhances the positive effect of slack on temporal orientation. Our theory offers explanations for non-findings in previous analysis of the relationship between CEO equity based pay and temporal orientation and provides the insights that CEO incentives created by stock options: (1) enhance the effect ...

University Sustainability Reporting: A Review Of The Literature And Development Of A Model., Alan J. Richardson, Meghan D. Kachler
Odette School of Business Publications
Many universities have made a commitment to improving the sustainability of their campuses however only a small number report to stakeholders on their sustainability performance to allow accountability and the quality of the reports issued varies widely. This Chapter reviews studies of sustainability reporting by universities and identifies the factors that have been associated with the decision to report on sustainability and the quality of those reports. Most of the existing empirical work on sustainability reporting by universities is case-based. We critique this literature and identify areas in need of conceptual and empirical clarification. We provide a model, hypotheses, constructs ...

When The Due Date Is Not The “Do” Date!, Theresa M. Mastrianni Ms.
Learning Communities Research and Practice
Our students consistently hand in assignments late, or complete them at the last minute. Why is it that they know about assignments all term long yet only begin them the night before the assignment is due? Based on a career-focused learning community at Kingsborough Community College of the City University of New York, this article looks at ways to help our “millennial” students develop better time management skills. It shows how time management and prioritizing can be introduced as a tool for success in college and life and offers suggestions to better engage students in getting assignments done in a ...
Project Management In A Commercial Environment, 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology
Project Management In A Commercial Environment, Ann Murphy
The ITB Journal
Projects are proposed as a result of creative ideas and as responses to problems and planning. While relatively small projects can be managed on an informal basis, complex projects require formal project management in order to achieve specific objectives, obtain and allocate resources in an efficient and effective manner, meet allocated budgets, and ensure that critical time schedules are met. This paper examines the principal elements of project management by analysing the key roles which Project Managers play, the roles with which the Project Manager must interact, the methods available for the definition, monitoring, control and closure of the project ...
Does Majority Voting Improve Board Accountability?, 2015 NYU Law School
Does Majority Voting Improve Board Accountability?, Stephen Choi, Jill Fisch, Marcel Kahan, Edward B. Rock
Directors have traditionally been elected by a plurality of the votes cast. This means that in uncontested elections, a candidate who receives even a single vote is elected. Proponents of “shareholder democracy” have advocated a shift to a majority voting rule in which a candidate must receive a majority of the votes cast to be elected. Over the past decade, they have been successful, and the shift to majority voting has been one of the most popular and successful governance reforms.
Yet critics are sceptical as to whether majority voting improves board accountability. Tellingly, directors of companies with majority voting ...
Key Factors Of Sustainable Firm Performance: A Strategic Approach, 2015 Istanbul Commerce University
Key Factors Of Sustainable Firm Performance: A Strategic Approach, Mustafa Emre Civelek, Murat Çemberci, Okşan Kibritci Artar, Nagehan Uca
The development of information technologies and their increased significance for business environments have forced businesses to rethink traditional methods of generating value and surviving the hyper-competitive conditions of our time. The uncertainty, dynamism, volatility, and impermanence of modern commercial environments have shifted the foundations of business success and survival.
Key factors that now affect firm performance and determine sustainability include knowledge creation, knowledge management, uncertainty management, organizational intelligence, and supply chain administration. The authors propose an analytical approach to identifying and enhancing these critical factors, and they describe ways for firms to exploit their strengths and minimize or compensate for ...
Perspectives Of Entrepreneurship And Its Impact On Stakeholders’ Co-Creation, 2015 Indian Institute of Technology - Roorkee
Perspectives Of Entrepreneurship And Its Impact On Stakeholders’ Co-Creation, Ridhi Arora Research Scholar
In the past decade, the topic of entrepreneurship has undergone a lot of scholarly examination by academics and management practitioners (Naudé, 2013). Entrepreneurship aims to bring about the cohesive integration of social, economic, institutional, and cultural environments, both at the individual level and the group level. The entrepreneurship concept has been built on the strong historical roots that have led to advancements in entrepreneurial research and its related areas. This chapter provides coverage of the various theoretical perspectives underlying the origin and evolution of entrepreneurship. As the concept of entrepreneurship represents a “multifaceted phenomenon” (Toma et al., 2014), I will ...
Virtual R&D Teams: A New Model For Product Development, 2015 University of Malasya
Virtual R&D Teams: A New Model For Product Development, Nader Ale Ebrahim
Open Access Journals
Increased global competitions have urged small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to develop new products faster. Virtual research and development (R&D) teams in SMEs can offer a solution to speed up time-to-market of new product development (NPD). However, factors that affect the effectiveness of virtual teams for NPD are still not adequately verified. This paper presents the correlations between virtual R&D team constructs and virtual team effectiveness by developing a “Virtual Research and Development Team” (ViR&DT) model. The items, which may influence the effectiveness of virtual teams, are taken from the literature. Through an online survey and by ...

The Evolution Of Csr And Its Reception In Post-Socialist Environments: The Case Of Hungary, István András, Mónika Rajcsányi-Molnár
Journal of Environmental Sustainability
Social responsibility is one of the most important requirements in business life. Values and mission statements, community contributions, ethics codes and sustainability reports are staples of the web pages of every self-respecting company. The concept has inspired a burgeoning academic discourse featuring some of the most noted social scientists. And yet, despite some important solutions and achievements, a rapidly changing and globalizing world continues to pose new challenges. The purpose of this article is to identify both achievements and challenges in the specific intersections of western corporate culture and post-socialist Eastern Europe. We first review the western, international academic discourse ...
Life Beyond The Like: Uses & Gratifications Of Sharing Business Facebook Page Content, 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Life Beyond The Like: Uses & Gratifications Of Sharing Business Facebook Page Content, Sara M. Nash
Theses from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications
One of the main reasons businesses create a Facebook Page is to solidify relationships with existing customers who are Facebook users and to leverage those relationships to gain new customers. Many studies have asked Facebook users to articulate the gratifications they receive when “liking” a business Facebook Page. These studies help explain what gratifications users gain by connecting to businesses via Facebook. To expand on these findings, the current pilot study applied the uses and gratifications theory to identify Facebook users’ motivations to “share” business Facebook content within their own personal network. Understanding users’ reasons for “sharing” will help businesses ...
Corporate Social Responsibility In The B-2-B Market, 2015 Saurage Research Institute
Corporate Social Responsibility In The B-2-B Market, Susan Saurage-Altenloh, Perry Haan
Atlantic Marketing Association Proceedings
Organizations that invest in corporate social responsibility (CSR) to improve the quality of a community or population expect a return on their investment in the form of improved brand reputation and greater consideration in the competitive environment. Homburg, Stierl, and Bornemann (2013) determined that targeted CSR activities could enhance trust and identification by organizational customers, thus fostering customer loyalty. The authors confirmed that CSR influenced client trust through loyalty and that integrating instrumental stakeholder theory with social exchange theory undergirded this link between CSR and trust. Maignan and Ferrell (2004) exhorted marketers to focus beyond consumers to other stakeholder groups ...
Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, 2015 Melbourne Business School
Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof
Geoffrey P Martin
We examine the unique nature of agency problems within publicly traded family firms by investigating the earnings management decision of dominant family owners relative to non-family. To do so, we draw upon literature demonstrating that family owners are loss averse with respect to the family’s socioemotional wealth (SEW), or the affective endowment derived from firm ownership and control. Our theory and findings suggest that potential reputational consequences of earnings management lead family principals to engage in less of this practice relative to non-family firms, and that founder family firms are less likely than non-founder family firms to use earnings ...

Defining Your Own Sustainable Future, Jacob Johnsen
Jacob Johnsen, MSc
How do you create – and maintain – an attractive service portfolio, and how to compete in a shifting environment? In our changing world, survival is not a question of size, speed or coverage. You must be adaptive. Posts can find out where to adapt, by examining the changes in customer behaviour, changing demands and technological achievements. Volumes are shifting from letters to packets, and so far, courier companies have taken market share from posts. Jacob Johnsen looks at the current changes and gives some guidelines on how to set up pointers for an ever-changing direction.

Authenticity In Music Performance: Evidence From The Singer-Songwriter Community, 2015 Dalton State College
Authenticity In Music Performance: Evidence From The Singer-Songwriter Community, Jon Littlefield
Atlantic Marketing Association Proceedings
Experiencing music provides a unique lens to study identity. The alienation resulting from increased technological mediation in both music production and consumption might drive consumption (Potter 2010), hence authenticity may be an appealing positioning strategy for marketers. Singer-songwriters, for example, write and perform their own music with minimal technological interference. This represents a direct connection with the musician that we characterize as more historically authentic (Thornton 1996), however this characterization is not universal. In this paper, I seek to gather insight into the myriad expressions of authenticity within the music consumption environment by detailing a study of performance musicians.
